    I have no doubt the old kernel is there ... only I thought that the Grub set up should show it in the menu when it comes up (or maybe it is different now. I hadn't payed it much attention until these last weeks).

    Following oldfred's suggestions I searched all over my BIOS ... no keyboard options

    Normand;

    Don't know what can be said about the keyboard... Bios brings up and checks out the hardware, hands of to grub to get the OS up and running.
    Bios recognizes the keyboard, grub does not and the OS loads up an appropriate driver to deal with the keyboard .. and all is then good.

    The keyboard is a usb device.. might I offer that you play with the usb settings in bios ...make careful note of the various screens you are in and what options in that screen are changed.

    What bios and version are you running ? I will try and locate the manufacturer's manual on line and see what I can determine.

    when all else fails.....read the instructions

    The BIOS is: Wolfdale1333-D667 P1-40

    From my deep ignorance I see things with GRUB (1.99-21 ... 3.9):
    - this is where the keyboard does not work
    - it does not show the previous linux images
    Trying to explore and understand theGRub manual and I'm lost.

    I don't know if there was a GRUb update when the issue began to appear - May 31

    I hesitate since my ignorance often being the source of any problems

    Normand. Awareness of ignorance is the first step in learning !

    None of us were born knowing what we know. It is a process.
    ubuntu is a great experience in learning as with good backups and a liveCD, any errors/mistakes can be corrected !

    Grub menu ... I have heavily modified my boot menu so do not have a means to verify... but to the best of my memory there exist an item on that grub boot menu "advanced options", within this sub menu are all the older kernels. As you only have one operating system I expect that you will only see one boot kernel option. Until your keyboard is functional within the grub menu you can not access this sub menu. Let me see what I can find with the info provided 'bout the usb.

    I'll be back

    Normand;
    Here is my reference:
    http://download.asrock.com/manual/Wolfdale1333-D667.pdf
    In your bios is a "usb configuration" page. From the manual section 3.3.8 and set:
    usb controller -> enable
    usb 2.0 support -> enable
    legacy usb support -> auto

    I suggest make only one alteration from what is presently set (note what is presently set) If required make the change, save that change (write change to cmos ??) and exit ...reboot ...let the system boot to grub menu ...keyboard work ?

    No ? then repeat with the "usb 2.0 support" option ... write changes to cmos
    last check "legacy usb support"...

    I hope this helps

    My bios - "usb configuration" was:
    usb controller -> enable
    usb 2.0 support -> enable
    legacy usb support -> disable

    changed legacy usb support -> auto

    and the keyboard works perfectly. I can step down the grub menu.

    Sorry for not seeing this clearly myself and for dragging it on.

    I would declare this solved. I will take the PulseAudio back to the sound people on launchpad, later when I have time.

    Very many thanks for your diligence and patience, and to oldfred for the pointer.

    Normand; Hey ... That is indeed something good to report.
    And Yes, I agree that this thread should now be closed -> and -> open a new one in respect to the permissions issue we have been going round and around with.
    I still have nothing new to add ... opening a new thread will give visibility to this issue and I hope others can give guidance to how to further trouble shoot this.
    Quit is not in my nature, back up, regroup and find another avenue of approach !

    inquiring minds want to know

    Narmand: Closing remarks;

    Hey, we are all in this together ! You have come a long way in "domesticating" your system and I trust I have been instrumental in your continuing contributions to the overall movement.

    I hope to catch you in the other thread.

    enjoy
